No Increase in Social Security Benefits for 2016

leave a comment »

Prices keep going up.

And up.

You cost of living is higher each year.

Many seniors’ only source of income is social security.

Then, the federal government does not increase social security benefits.

Even when social security benefits are raised, the increase does not keep up with the cost of living.

Final result:  homeless seniors eating dog food.

Up to you.

Medicare Premiums to Increase

leave a comment »

There will also be a big increase in the Medicare Part B deductible.

Another in the long line of increases to seniors health care costs.

As the nation’s health care costs continue their out of control spiral, seniors bear an increasing share of the burden.

What does the future hold?

Dead and/or bankrupt seniors.

Politicians are slowly reducing governments’ protection of seniors.

It dose not have to be this way.

To stop it, seniors have to take action; and not just voting for the same corrupt and/or corrupt politicians.

Neither political party cares about seniors.

Seniors direct involvement is necessary to protect themselves.

Metabolic Syndrome

leave a comment »

Nearly HALF of everyone over the age of 60 has metabolic syndrome.

If you’re not familiar with metabolic syndrome, it’s time to get acquainted –because clearly, it’s going around.

Metabolic syndrome is when nearly all your other mainstream markers of health fall apart at once: You blood sugar, triglycerides and BP all jump, while your healthy HDL cholesterol plummets.

Even if you don’t end up with diabetes, living with metabolic syndrome means teetering on the brink of the disease and facing all the same risks that come along for the ride, including heart disease, dementia and an early death.

One new study finds metabolic syndrome — even without diabetes — will increase your risk of death from cardiovascular disease by 60 percent.

It’s a risk you just don’t have to face — it’s a risk NO ONE should face — because metabolic syndrome is 100 percent reversible. Even if you have all the conditions that mark the disease and have had them for years, it’s not too late to turn it around.

But remember, this is — as they say on TV — a limited time offer. If you’ve got metabolic syndrome, time is running out.

Get started reversing it today, or your next stop is diabetes and heart disease.

With an offer you can’t refuse.

Natixis Global Retirement Index

leave a comment »

Natixis, a Paris-based investment company, recently released its Global Retirement Index.

The United States is tied for 19th with Slovenia and Qatar.

There is another fact to be aware of:

—  The United States has turned its retirees into government ATM cash machines.

As they say, “Something is very wrong with this picture”.

But it gets worse:

—  the United States rating is on the decline

—  the speed of the decline is going to increase

The federal government is going to drain seniors dry.

And seniors are going to just let them.

Are You Sitting Around Waiting to Die?

leave a comment »

Probably are.

What else are you doing?

Oh, ranting and whining.

Then there is the wishin’ and hopin’.

Many years to go.

Could be doing something.

But you are just sitting there watching the time go by.

That is what you did before you became a senior?

So much potential.

All gone to waste.

Everything Affect Seniors’ Quality of Life

leave a comment »

EVERYTHING!

Every last little thing.

All aspects of society.

Seniors narrow their focus to  government benefits such as social security and medicare.

This is a big mistake.

For a better life, seniors should broaden their focus.

Every law and regulation the government enacts effects their quality of  life.

Every last one!
